Additional Registration Information

  • Program planning is the responsibility of the individual student. Each regular degree seeking student, whether part-time or full-time, has a faculty advisor assigned to assist him or her in planning a program and sequence of courses. Each academic department prepares materials to assist students in program planning and keeping requirements of the major field of study up to date and coordinated with current professional certification, licensing, and other requirements. Each student should review his or her own personal degree plan before each early registration period and be prepared for the pre-registration conference with his or her academic advisor.
  • Changes in Registration. After an initial registration for a group of courses is fully validated, a student may make adjustments in courses, sections, or grading status, if approved by faculty advisor or major department chairperson.
